Description

Kodama continues to discuss growing up as a Seventh-Day Adventist, having many restrictions such as not being able to go to football games or movies. After this, he talks about the holidays he grew up celebrating, including New Years and Christmas, where he would get to have his mother's specialty - sushi. He grew up learning Japanese culture and values, the most important being, do not bring shame to the family name. Growing up in Mountain View, he would grow up in a diverse population but felt he had limitations as a Japanese American. He would attend Mountain View Union High School and play basketball with friends, also talking about the people that impacted his life at this time.
